A man attempting to repair a malfunctioning forklift at a factory in Queens was crushed to death earlier today. Details are still emerging about the incident, but the FDNY says the unnamed man was killed at the Raw Equipment Corporation building located at 2800 College Point Boulevard in College Point. One official at the scene told NY1 the support holding up the forklift gave way and crushed the victim at approximately 11 a.m.

"You gotta be careful all the time especially using equipment like that," one worker told NY1. "It can happen anywhere, anytime. Obviously it's sad." The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and at this time there is no criminality suspected. We'll update as more information becomes available.
